Ya know – so many of us allow questions to take over our thoughts. We ask “What if God is nothing more than a bronze statue?” “Why does God allow bad things to happen?” “Where is God when innocent children are shot and killed?” We also question our own faith….faith we have been taught since childhood.
Here’s the thing – I don’t have the answers. I am as broken and confused as anyone else. I am nothing but a beautiful mess trying to navigate my way through life. Most of the time I can’t even see where I am going – but I go anyways; because time has a way of going by whether we want it to or not.
Here is just something to think about….music. Christianity – having a relationship with a living God – is the only belief system wherein there is an entire industry of music. Christian artists range anywhere from hard metal to instrumental. There is something for everyone. How and why would such a large industry exist if there was not a living God pouring His spirit over it?
Sure there are songs about buddha and various gods, but Christian music is huge. I would even venture to say that if you were to listen to it for a week, you would notice a positive change in your outlook.
So there you go – just another thought to pass along to you on this wintery Valentines Day. If you are feeling alone – know that Jesus has His arms open and waiting just for you. Find some christian music online – if you listen close – you will hear Him talking right to you – right where you are – wherever you are. He is there.
